We’re already in the middle of what many of us consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter what season your allergies bother you the most, everyone wants to alleviate the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to help. We’ve already mentioned the benefits that air filtration can provide, so why not take a closer look at one more tool that can help you breath easier.
No home is immune from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from allowing the outdoor air into your home when pollen, dust and ragweed fill the spring, summer and fall air. The goal is to make you more comfortable by minimizing or completely eliminating those irritants from impacting your home’s air. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common.
There are several things that you can do to keep from tracking allergens inside your home too.
- Take off your shoes before you come back inside after working outside
- After doing yardwork20, go inside and take a quick shower to rinse off any allergens that may be on your clothes or body
- If you have any pets that go outside, make sure you are brushing and bathing them frequently so that they don’t bring in allergens
Among homeowners, there can be some puzzlement as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Basically, air filters are a part of air purification systems like the PureAir™ system, but do not free the air of as many particles as an air purifier does. This is mainly due to the fact that the PureAir™ system is made up of a three-part system which includes a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is coated with a light-activated catalyst.
In the end, what really matters is undertaking those feisty allergies and making your indoor living environment an oasis of relief when the outdoor air can make it difficult to bear. Having a comfortable home that you want to be in is important and something that we all aim for when buying a home. After all, who wants to come home after a long day and feel miserable?
